Digital Event, Zoom
Globally there is an increased interest amongst government agencies, industry and academic experts in the integration of risk assessment as a part of allergen management, including as input into decisions on precautionary allergen labelling (PAL). Despite the increased maturity of allergen risk assessment approaches, which includes basic criteria on how calculations can be performed, there is a lack of consensus on practical deployment. This is a significant gap, as only with such consensus across all stakeholders and especially food operators can there be more accurate and meaningful PAL. Our project aims to define consensus on the methodologies needed for quantitative risk assessment by food business operators, and their implementation. This consensus is needed in order to protect public health and increase the trust of consumers with food allergies in packaged foods including their labelling. The expert group works on three work streams:
- QRA in the Supply Chain,
- QRA for production cross-contamination assessment and
- QRA for production errors/incidents
